we loved you
was our love,
and with veils
has it been veiled.
to the laughter
yet i cannot tarry longer.

and without his nest

With involvement as their guide and a
strong constitution as a foundation, the
Minnechaug Student Council began the
1969-1970 school year. Under the capa-
ble leadership of Alex Gray, and the
guidance of Mr. Steven Castonguay,
each meeting opened new channels of
student participation and responsibility.
Supported by the popular programs for
Snack Break and School Beautification,
valuable work in the three realms of
driving, dress, and discipline crowded
the schedule of each representative.
Many agree that improved communica-
tion and co-operation between stu-
dents, faculty, and administration has
been established largely as a result of
the Student Council's work. With pa-
tience and dedication, progressive steps
were made in an ever-widening scope of
efforts for a better Minnechaug.

Chess And Debating
With the establishment of "Prohibi-
tion of United States unilateral military
intervention in foreign countries" as the
topic, battles of wits and skills marked
the 1969-1970 season of the Minne-
chaug Debating Team. Under the
coaching of Mr. Paul LaFlamme, team
members learned to think while trying
to convince the judge of their viewpoint.
The hard work and talent of the Debat-
ing Team was proven in their successful
representation of Minnechaug.
Skill and knowledge of the funda-
mentals of chess are vital require-
ments of the members of the chess
team. The boys play regularly after
school in order to be ready for their
matches. A lot of hard mental work
results in victories for this group.
The Chess Team concentrates on their

Library Aides —
There is always alot of
work to be done in the
library. Checking out books,
filing, and returning books to
the shelves are but a few
things that must be done
every day. The Library
Service Club is a group of
girls who help Mrs. Marot
with these chores. They work
during their free time and
also after school.

the shoulder and asks you to take it away. The select se-

Quill And Scroll
In recognition of outstanding literary
achievement, Minnechaug is fortunate
to have a chapter of the Quill and
Scroll, a national honor society for high
school journalists. To qualify for mem-
bership, a student must be in the top
third of his class academically, and be
an exceptional worker on at least one of
our school's three publications. Among
the activities of this group is the annual
Valentine's Day cookie sale.

Breathing a collective sigh of relief when the yearbook

Headed by co-editors-in-chief, Evie House and Sharon Bagge,
and supervised by Mrs. Cesan, this group of students
worked all year long to organize a hectic, busy, and chao-
tic school year into a unified and interesting record of
memories and events. Harrassment by deadlines and pho-
tography schedules turns to apprehension when the finished
product is ready for all to see. All at Minnechaug are grate-
ful to the Falcon staff for their valuable service.

Life At Minnechaug
The Minnechaug school newspaper, the Smoke Sig-
nal, is one of the biggest contributors to our school's
reputation of excellence in literary publications. Pub-
lished once a month, the Smoke Signal contains articles
of interest for everyone, with recent news and unique
features spotlighting school and community. This year
was one of many innovations for the Smoke Signal, in-
cluding a change of format to a larger size, a Christmas
supplement distributed to every student, and the estab
lishment of a Falcon trademark. Headed by Editor-in-
chief Alec Gray, and supervised by Mrs. Bauer, the Smoke
Signal staff is to be commended for their quality report-

team of faculty members in a close match. In their efforts'
for an ever better record, the team members develop their

bills in the same manner as the United
States Congress. The members met
during the year to learn and practice
parliamentary procedure, thus gaining a

Yes, football is more than the glamour and glory of Saturday afternoon; the hot
dogs and pep rallies are frills. Football is a bruising game. It requires each play-
er's dedication to aching muscles and weary limbs. Each football player's cour-
age and stamina is challenged every time he steps onto the field. In the midst of
mental strain and physical intimidation, who will stand tall? For Minnechaug's
football team, the hopes and expectations of September materialized into but
two victories. However, many talented underclassmen got a lot of varsity play-
ing experience, and next fall there will be more victories. That is a promise.
Frosh Finish 5-1 On The Season
The caliber of play has improved considerably in the fresh-
man football team during the past couple of years. The establ-
ishment of little league football teams locally has brought young
players literally into "contact" with the fundamentals of football
playing, before they reach high school. Many of the members of
the 1969 freshman football team were veterans of the little
leagues, and they demonstrated their skills by producing a 5-1
season record. South Hadley was the only team which managed
to stop the fledgling Falcons, who averaged 23 points a game,
while holding the opposition to just 11. Head Coach Paul Des-
lauriers is looking forward to this coming September to scan the
new faces for varsity material. In this squad, he is likely to find

Booters Win 3 Out Of Last 4
The 1969 varsity team finished with a show-
ing of 6-7-1. This was not indicative of what the
booters could do, however. Aroused, the Falcons
won three out of their last four games and tied
with highly touted Cathredral. All-League picks
Gary Harris, Bruce Fuller and Biff Fisher led the
attack against Minnechaug's foes. They are sen-
iors, however, and their golden cleats will have
to be replaced. The filling of these shoes will
have to be done by talented underclassmen —
Rick (Rocket) Ingraham, Ken Cieplik (next
year's Co-captains), Frank Bongiorni, Pat Twoom-
ey, Rich Bourbeau and Kevin Courtney. With
such a wealth of talent, hard work, and a little
bit of Lady Luck, Minnechaug's booters will cer-
tainly improve on last year's record.

Coach Morgan was never really sure which players he would

oted to varsity. This added incentive made everybody play their
best. If this same spirit is carried over to next year's squad the
1970 outlook is bright.

season. Why? The 1969-1970 Girls' Drill
Team put on some spectacular perfor-
mances. In November, the girls doffed
their sweaters and kilts and stepped
into newly made uniforms to perform at
the basketball games. They worked
hard on routines to go along with their
new image, and the result was some
original precision maneuvers. A well
done job and a lot of dedication de-
serves a big round of applause. Thanks,

Bouncing back from last place to first
place, the girls' basketball team is now
co-champion of the Valley Wheel League.
The team, led by co-captains Debbie Pet-
zold and Denise Gagnier, put in long and
odd hours. Plagued by injuries throughout
the entire season, the Falconettes still
managed to capture the title. Scoring was
led by Denise Gagnier with 156 points,
and Anne Lescault with 118 points. The
girls also played an entirely different ball
game this year as the rules were changed
to five players and fullcourt. This proved
to be challenging for both the girls and
Miss Dunn. The tremendous effort put
forth by Miss Dunn and the whole team
found them a spot in the Western Mass.

patience and hard work in trying to bring
out the best in us!

team spirit, Coaches Cascio and

maybe even the new white

The "Rookies" Beat The Champs
For their first year in an organized league, the
hockey team had an impressive 7-4-3 record.
Lead by the powerful first line of Biff Fisher,
Pete Powers and Pete Kielbasa, and the tena-
cious defense of Joe Galavotti, Ken Cieplik and
goalie Bill Brummage, the team established it-
self as a solid contender in Fay Division play. As
"rookies" in the league, the skaters pulled the
upset of the season in out-hustling league
champs, Easthampton, for a 2-1 victory. Coach
Verani and his underclassmen are looking for-
ward to a berth in the Western Mass. tourna-
ment next year.

In Four Years Of
With the strong competition in the
league this year, victories were not easy to
come by. The Minnechaug Gymnasts
suffered three defeats early in the season.
They were, however, balanced off with six
big wins which can be attributed to team
effort. Seniors Frank Mazza, Tom Gallagh-
er, Doug Coombs, Cliff Keeny and Roger
Pelletier lead the way, but the hard work
of a group of underclassmen made them
score the points which meant finishing
with a good season.

When they were good, they were very, very good. Two tough wins over
palmer, a win against Bill Folkins and Longmeadow, and some inspired play
against reigning Western Mass champ Commerce were the highlights of a
hot and cold season. Twice against East Longmeadow, the ball just wouldn't
go in, and those losses stifled the squad's chances for this year's crown. The
team was young; having three sophomore starters and only three seniors, it
showed some excellent play, and should be considered a top threat in the
Valley Wheel next season.

On a Friday night in February, a group of nine lanky young men and one not
so ianky, not so young walked into Friendly's on Boston Road. The group was
the Minnechaug junior varsity basketball team, which was being treated by
coach, Ray Mussleman, for clinching the Valley Wheel junior varsity champion-
ship. The title was not an official one; no trophy was awarded. The only reward
was the sense of personal accomplishment that each player had. All aspire to
make varsity next year, where, hopefully, they will win the official title. Congratu-
lations, JV. Good luck!

In the 1970 FALCON, we have tried to vary the format which our school year-
book has usually followed. We hope we have been successful in capturing the
many different sides of Minnechaug. To the staff, we extend our thanks and
appreciation for the many hours of devoted work they contributed. Also, we
would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thanks to the following
people: Mr. Donald Lendry and Mr. Mark Stewart of the American Yearbook
Company, Mr. Hausamann and Mr. Brooks Johnson of Hausamann Studio, the
FALCON editors, and Mrs. Mary Cesan our yearbook advisor.

And Ellen's New Parents
On May 22, 1970, Minnechaug opened its
doors to an entirely different kind of play. Cen-
tered around a group of teenagers, the plot
showed how they feel when their parents "aban-
don" them. David and Louise Michaels (Bill
Spinn and Jonna Goulding) had just been mar-
ried and adopted each other's children, Judy
(Roxanne Kendall) felt that this meant that her
father no longer cared for her, so along with the
"Filthy Five" kidnapped her new sister. The play
was staged half on a platform and half on the
regular level. This enabled the audience to see
two scenes at once. With the success of this
play it looks like 'Chaug is on to bigger and bet-

This year the traditional Swing Band
Show started off with a light show done
to "Aquarius; Let the Sun Shine" from
the Broadway musical "Hair". The use
of a weird tape, black lights, and a
strobe was indeed effective. The rest of
Act 1 consisted of songs from musicals
such as "Funny Girl", Oklahoma, Sweet
Charity, and "Fiddler on the Roof". Also
featured was a comic ballet done by
Diane Ball. Act 2 consisted of scenes
from "Hello, Dolly!" with Jody Baxen-

The 1970 Gymnastic Teams
This year's gymnastic show was highlighted by
its new and different interpretations of gymnas-
tics. Coordination and beauty were demonstrated
when selected members of the teams presented
Coed Floor Exercise and Floor Exercise of the Fu-
ture. Also new this year was Artistic Gymnastics,
showing a member of the team on each piece of
apparatus, and a Hoop routine. Pyramids and Tiger
Leaping were again a part of the show. And of
course the competitive routines. The exciting night
ended with a series of tableaux representing
sports of the four seasons. Under the direction of
coaches Cascio, Morgan, Craig, and Santucci, the
show was one to be proud of.

defeated the stubborn Falcons by a close mar-
gin. The team was ably coached by Don Barn-

enthusiasm aided the squad in achieving a win-

This year's tennis team put experience and
hard work to use. The experience came from
the varsity team, comprised of seniors Bruce
Drouin, Bruce Johnson, Tom Fogg, Wayne
Carpenter and Geoff Spafford. Unfortunately, the
J.V.'s had almost no experienced team members.
The J.V.'s worked hard, however, to gain what-
ever knowledge and skill they could. Next year's
varsity tennis team will show the efforts of this
year's tennis team, as the same people who
comprised the J.V. team this year will com-

High spirits and countless laps
around the track amid cries of
MOVE, were the order of the day
as the first year girl's tennis team
compiled a fine record, losing only

promises that next year, rival
Longmeadow will fall.
On May 15 and 16, the Girl's Synchronized Swimming Team took their
audience on a "Scent-a-mental Journey", as they presented their annual
show. The show consisted of routines, written by the girls, which were named
after well-known colognes or perfumes. The routines consisted of varying
numbers of girls and included "Brute", a solo by Bonnie Bridgman, Pub"
a duet by Kathy Snyder and Denise Hanson, and "Wind Song", a trio
choreographed by Leslie Blodgett and featuring Nancy Fleming, Joan Hebert
and Debbie Nelson. The team paid tribute to its twelve seniors in the an
nual "Pomp and Circumstance" which was somewhat varied from its tradi
tional form. Instead of simply swimming down the pool, the senior members
of the team performed an extremely difficult twelve-man dolphin chain.
(A lifeguard was standing by in case one of the seniors didn't make it up!)
The long weeks of hard practice were officially brought to a close with the
presentation of roses to Coach Cascio, without whom the show would
never have been pulled off. Many thanks to the lighting crew, Mike Lynch,
Joe Twining, Ned Dean, and Jeanne Abrahamson. Congratulations to the
entire team on an excellent performance.
